On the same note, I recall driving on I-5 through Anaheim as a teenager
when the speed limit there was 70 MPH.  Those were the days (the 70's).
I also recall no speed limit in Nevada with us kids egging on dad to
get the '57 Buic to 100 MPH on I-15 going in to Las Vegas.

Somehow, I think the CHP still wants to issue tickets for the bucks though.
How else would they get their fleet of Crown Vics?
